InnovateFPGA contest seeks sustainable solutions using Microsoft Azure and Intel IoT

Microsoft and Intel empower technologies that can build a more environmentally sustainable future and reduce the demand we place on Earth's resources. That's why Microsoft Azure IoT and Intel are partnering with the InnovateFPGA Design Contest, where developers can harness Azure cloud computing and Intel® FPGA technology to create solutions that reduce environmental impacts.


The design contest is looking for inventive developers from around the globe who can create cutting-edge solutions. Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are already reducing climate impact: from smart lighting that turns off when not needed to transportation systems that reduce pollution-exacerbating car congestion. New IoT solutions could address unique challenges, such as reducing the waste of resources such as water, tracking ocean life, or increasing protection of endangered species.


FPGA Cloud Connectivity Kits, provided to qualified teams in the InnovateFPGA contest, show how an Intel® Edge-Centric FPGA (field programmable gate array) can connect seamlessly with Azure IoT. In addition, development teams will have a choice to use Azure IoT Central or IoT Hub to connect their solution to the Azure cloud. Developers interested in building sustainable solutions using this technology can register their team at


Working jointly to encourage innovative developers


Azure IoT and Intel already work jointly together in advanced solutions, complementing each other's technology to address challenges in a variety of industries. The FPGA Cloud Connectivity Kit enables innovative developers to perform new tasks and solve more challenges, as real-time handling of Azure workloads is easier with a dedicated FPGA-based hardware accelerator. FPGA circuits also can be configured specifically for various workloads to provide better performance and flexibility.


Additionally, Azure IoT Central, IoT Hub, and IoT Plug and Play help builders and developers connect devices to the cloud. IoT Central offers a secure platform, centralized management to reconfigure and update devices, and a growing selection of IoT app templates for common scenarios. IoT Hub, meanwhile, enables secure and reliable communication via the cloud between IoT applications and the devices they manage. Finally, IoT Plug and Play seeks to remove technical barriers, reducing development time, cost, and complexity.

How Microsoft Azure and Intel can reduce environmental impacts


Sustainability and environmental efforts by Microsoft and Intel go beyond their support of the InnovateFPGA contest. As part of our commitment to put sustainable technologies at the heart of our innovation, we're focused on four key areas of environmental impact to local communities: carbon, water, waste, and ecosystems. We're striving to use 100% renewable energy by 2025, replenish more water than we consume by 2030, create zero waste annually by that same year, and achieve net-zero deforestation from new construction. Enterprises looking to understand and potentially reduce their environmental impacts can use the Sustainability Calculator.


Just as Azure cloud computing can help reduce energy use, Intel FPGA-enabled architecture used with the cloud is economical and power-efficient, making high-performance computing more sustainable. Microsoft is also researching new approaches for improving computing and cloud data handling while simultaneously using less energy and more sustainable materials.


Project 15 from Microsoft also is helping to accelerate conservation organizations and scientific teams reduce costs and complexity in deploying IoT technologies through its open-source software platform. The Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme, implemented by the United Nations Development Program, is collaborating with the InnovateFPGA contest to task teams to create solutions for biodiversity, sustainable agriculture, and marine conservation. The GEF has shared use cases from the Project 15 initiative on the contest website.


Submit design proposals to the InnovateFPGA Design Contest


Regional teams of university students, builders, and professional engineers with the creativity and ingenuity to design solutions for challenging environmental issues are encouraged to participate in the InnovateFPGA Design Contest. Teams must register and submit their solution proposals at the contest registration page by Sept. 30, 2021. After registering, free FPGA Cloud Connectivity Kits will be shipped to teams whose proposals are selected to advance forward.


Qualifying teams will develop solutions for sustainability until Spring 2022, where they will compete in their respective regional competition. Teams at this level will have a chance to win cash prizes and an invitation to the Grand Finale event at Intel headquarters in San Jose, California, in 2022.

Meet a recent Microsoft Learn Student Ambassador graduate: Fanie Ndlovu

This is the next segment of our blog series highlighting Microsoft Learn Student Ambassadors who achieved the Gold milestone and have recently graduated from university. Each blog in the series features a different student and highlights their accomplishments, their experience with the Student Ambassadors community, and what they’re up to now.


Today we meet Fanie Ndlovu who is from South Africa and recently graduated from the Durban University of Technology with an Bachelor of Technology in Information Technology.




Responses have been edited for clarity and length.  


When you joined the Student Ambassador community in 2019, did you have specific goals you wanted to reach, such as a particular skill or quality?  Did you achieve them? How has the program impacted you in general? 


In 2016, I was working for the biggest pay TV company in Africa as a User Acceptance Tester, but after a year, I decided to leave to go back to my university to follow my mission of creating a platform that equips students and youth with fundamental skills required in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).


The Student Ambassador community played a significant role in enabling me to create the platform as it provided resources, mentorship and network. The Azure credit we get every month helped our team to prepare lessons using different services, and we got access to Microsoft Cloud Advocates to ask advice and were able to collaborate with other Student Ambassadors.


What are the accomplishments that you’re the proudest of and why?


The creation of my platform was my biggest accomplishment.  The reason for me to build such a platform was because tertiary institutions are unable to deliver fundamental 4IR skills such as cloud computing skills, coding, AI, and robotics/IOT on time because of a rigid curriculum that is due to the big size of the university and to strict and long policies that are required to be followed in order to change one’s curriculum. To this date, the platform I created has impacted more than 4000 people, including university students, school students, women, kids with disabilities, and deaf students. 


In 2020 I hosted the platform’s first virtual event for deaf students to talk about Artificial Intelligence. What inspired me to host this event is that we have deaf students at my university, but the tech events I have attended such as hackathons I never had any deaf students attend, so I decided to host a tech event to uplift the community. We received press coverage in The South African and on the Durban University of Technology website. We took attendees through an introduction to Cloud Computing (Azure) and Artificial Intelligence and showed them how those tools are used to address the challenges that the deaf community faces daily.


I also obtained my Power Platform Fundamentals Certificate using a voucher provided by the Student Ambassador program. That helped me to complete a big project for my university, the Revolutionary Engagement App, a mobile app I created using Microsoft Power Apps along with Someleze Diko, a Beta level Student Ambassador.  The Engagement App is a mobile and web application that will register, monitor, and maintain university students’ and staff engagement projects based on the faculty and department goals and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.


What are you doing now that you’ve graduated? 


I am running my company, Fanie Home Pty (LTD), a Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider focused on Power Platform. The company has been operating since 2017. Currently we are busy with an e-learning platform for entrepreneurs and a reporting tool for the university, both of which run on Azure. 


Our country has always struggled to create job opportunities for graduates after college. I started my company to bring hope to them by creating job opportunities and a place for them to express their talents while making this world a better place.


If you could redo your time as a Student Ambassador, is there anything you would have done differently?


I would have planned my time appropriately to host more events, wrote more articles, and done more video tutorials. I also would have engaged more with other Student Ambassadors.


If you were to describe the community to a student who is interested in joining, what would you say about it to convince him or her to join?


Currently most companies when hiring look beyond your main tertiary computer science or IT qualifications. They check for industry certifications such as Azure certificates. As students, these certificates might be a little expensive to you, but the Student Ambassador community program provides you with free vouchers to take certifications, which increases your chance of employment.


What advice would you give to new Student Ambassadors?


You are part of an amazing and great community. Get in touch with other Student Ambassadors with a higher status [Editor’s note: there are 3 levels that a Student Ambassador can attain—Alpha, Beta, and Gold] to help navigate through the program. Other Student Ambassadors can also help you empower others to achieve more since you can't do it alone.


What is your motto in life, your guiding principle?


In my personal and business life: Do no harm to others.


What is one random fact about you that few people are aware of?


Many people see me doing amazingly well. What motivated me to do amazingly is the fact that when I was in high school in 2010,  I failed 6 out of 7 subjects. To overcome that problem, I eliminated videogames and playtime with friends during weekdays, designed a study timetable, and requested a friend who was senior to me to help me.

Another fact is that the weird thing about me is I do not watch television series or movies, only documentaries.


Good luck to you in the future, Fanie!

Operationalize and Provide SLA for Data Pipelines

Azure Data Factory is loved and trusted by corporations around the world. As Azure's native cloud ETL service for scale-out server-less data integration and data transformation, it is widely used to implement Data Pipelines to prepare, process, and load data into enterprise data warehouse or data lake.


Typically, data pipelines run on auto-pilot, and are scheduled to run on a predefined timetable, using Schedule Trigger or Tumbling Window Trigger. And sometimes, these pipeline pipelines run mission critical workloads, preparing data for business reports or data analytics/machine learning projects.


There are two major challenges delivering service level agreements (SLAs) for these data pipelines:

  1. Compute environment for one activity, for instance SQL for a Stored Procedure activity, may throttle, slowing down the whole data pipeline and missing pipeline SLA.
  2. Pipeline developers aren't always actively monitoring the factory, and proactively seeking out long running pipelines that will miss SLAs.


To address these issues, today we are introducing the Elapsed Time Pipeline Run metric. Combined with Data Factory Alerts, we will empower data pipelines developers to better deliver SLAs to their customers: you tell us how long a pipeline should run, and we will notify you, proactively, when the pipeline runs longer than expected.


For each pipeline you want to create alerts on, during authoring phase, go to pipeline settings (by clicking on the blank space in the pipeline canvas). 

01 Set Elapsed Time Metric.png

Under Settings tab, check Elapsed time metric, and specify expected pipeline run duration. We strongly recommend you to set this to your business SLA, the amount of time that the pipeline can take to meet your business needs. Once the pipeline duration exceeds this setting, Data Factory will log am Elapsed Time Pipeline Run metric (metric id: PipelineElapsedTimeRuns) in Azure Monitor. In other words, you will get notified about long running pipelines proactively, before the pipeline eventually finishes.


Furthermore, follow the steps for Data Factory Alerts to set up alerts on the metric. Engineers will get notified to intervene and take steps to meet the SLAs, through emails or SMSs


We understand some pipelines will naturally take more time to finish than others, (like those with more steps, or moving more data), and there is no one-size-fit-all definition for long running pipelines. We kindly ask you to define the threshold for every pipeline that you need a SLA on. And when logging the metric for a particular pipeline, we will compare to its user-defined setting for expected run duration.


Note: this is an opt-in feature. No metric will ever be logged for a pipeline, if no expected run duration is specified for the aforementioned pipeline.
